ATMOSPHERE CONTROLLED COLD STORAGE ROOM
Extending the post-harvest life of the products is possible with cooling systems and atmosphere-controlled storage. Controlled atmoshpere cold storage is a type of storage method using special technology. By using controlled atmosphere cold storage, natural aging process of fruits and vegetables is slowed down by lowering the level of oxygen and keeping CO2 in certain levels. . The cooling system is the same as standard cold stores. On the other hand, it is necessary to change the air composition in the room and to provide gas tightness to help protect this changed air. Additionally, this system prevents bacterial growth and spread, and doubles storage life of the product without the use of any chemicals. Controlled atmosphere storage, which lengthens storage durations two or three times more particularly for apples, pomegranates, grapes, pears and kiwis, allows producers to market their products with the best selling prices.
